Generally I was entering child's name in the e-ticket/PRS tickets, but this ticket was made from a third party and was not done in it.

If the age of the child is below 5, neither the name will appear in the Chart, nor you have to pay any charges. Like Zahaib said earlier, it is just used for record purposes

Once I selected the last option, then they system showed that no such booking is available, then I changed it to None, then the booking has bee made and allotted the tickets as given in the scanned file. Earlier also I have been allotted like this, always allotting SL instead of my preference of LB in the final booking done by the system.

They have to ask for a Garib Rath from NDLS/NZM to TVC/KCVL/ERS with maximum coaches. Now This sector is not having such a fully AC common man train. In other trains, AC tickets are not sufficient as per the demand of passengers. Both Mumbai & Banglore sector is having Garib Rath Express. It is a unfair on part of both the Kerala Govt. and Railways.

I have booked three tickets each for two dates one for 14-05-2013 from NDLS to TCR which is a confirmed ticket and another for 18-05-2013 in Waiting List. The ticket charge was Rs. 4821 without their commission of Rs. 20.
I cancelled both these tickets on same day and IRCTC has credited Rs. 4626/- in confirmed ticket and Rs. 4746/- in Waiting Listed second ticket. In both tickets Rs. 175/- was service tax. In first ticket Rs. 195/- was deducted and in second ticket Rs. 75 was deducted.
anybody tell me what is the basis of deduction in these two cases. Also tell me Rs. 175/- of Service tax in both the tickets is refunded in the cancellation of my tickets.

I think there is no bank charge in case of ticket refund, if there is any charges, then they will debit it separately as it done at the time of booking.

For CNF tickets in 3AC cancellation charges is Rs 60 per passenger
For WL tickets in 3AC cancellation charges is Rs 20 per passenger
If a AC ticket is cancelled Rs 5 per passenger from service tax is deducted and other is refunded.
So for CNF tickets Rs 195 (65 x 3) was deducted.
WL tickets Rs 75 (25 x 3) was deducted.
For both the tickets Rs 15 (5 x 3) was deducted from the service tax portion and remaining Rs 156 (171 - 15) is refunded.
The PDF copy of the ticket shows Rs 171 as service tax and not Rs 175

It is Rs. 171/- not 175/- as mentioned by me in my earlier posts. At the time of introduction of Service Tax in railway booking I have heard that the Service Tax portion will not be refunded by the Railway at the time of cancellation and we have to file separately with Service Tax department for the refund like in the case of TDS. From this it got cleared that Service also refunded after deducting Rs. 5/- per booked ticket, balance amount get credited in the bank.
